“The public sector needs to cut costs, do more with less, improve efficiency and increase the quality of services delivered to citizens.” We’ve been hearing this since 2010 and all Healthcare Trusts and Local Authorities are continuing to do this. However, simply cutting the budget and improving efficiency within individual organisations is not enough, there needs to be a more integrated approach to the delivery of services.
In line with the Health and Social Care Act, Public Health functions were transferred from the NHS to Local Government and since then we have begun to see a different landscape for how care is delivered. However, the path to a fully integrated care programme is not straight forward and we still have a long way to go, although there are some exemplar examples to learn from of which many will be talked about at this meeting.
The Excellence In Healthcare meeting is on Wednesday 19th – Thursday 20th June and will be held at Shrigley Hall Hotel & Spa in Cheshire.
Excellence In Healthcare brings together senior leaders from across Health and Social Care to network with each other and discuss the current hot topics including:
• Busting Myths
• GDE Site Updates
• Digital Transformation
• Plugging the nursing gap
• Electronic Patient Records
• Technological implementation
• Collaborative Working – Beyond STP’s
• Reducing Hospital Admissions – Being proactive rather than reactive
Diane Baynham, Head of Digital Transformation at NHS England will be presenting on “Using Technology to Enable Transformation”. Diane will talk about how she is helping to deliver key technology that will support the transformation of urgent and emergency care across the United Kingdom.
Rachel Binks, Digital and Acute Care at NHS Airedale NHS Foundation Trust will speak about The Art of the Possible – Using Technology to Reduce Admissions and Attendance and Simon Marsh, Chief Information Officer of Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will take us through Collaborative Technology Implementation.
Attendees will be able to share their own experiences and the challenges they are currently facing. In addition, you will then have the opportunity to look at different ways of addressing these problems and an overall look at where we were, where we are and what needs to be done.
We are looking forward to another successful event where healthcare professionals will be getting together to share case studies and solve some of the problems they are facing in their areas.
